HMS Virtue by Champics16, on Flickr

The Virture is made up of three midsections and a couple thousand pieces. The rigging was all hand tied knot by knot. She is just under 30in. long and about 27in. In height.

You've fallen for one of the classic Blunders! the most famous of which is never get involved in a land war in Asia, but only slightly less well-known is this, Never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line!!!

I know that bumping topics isn't a nice thing to do.......but I couldn't resist!

This MOC is in fact MINE!  It was posted on Flickr, almost 2 years ago, and was my fist public MOC. I had always intended on posting here and thanking you guys for the front-page on Classic-Pirates! Posted Image Much Appreciated.

Since this MOC, I have changed my Flickr username to Sir Valiant~ and have been far more busy in building in the castle theme. But now that I am old enough to join Eurobricks I hope to be more active in the ways of a pirate Redcoat! I have some other ships that I have built and will post them here in due time, you may be able to find them on my Flickr if you do some digging: https://www.flickr.c...s/93632612@N08/ Good Luck!

Overall, Classic-Pirates is the main reason I joined Eurobricks so I hope to enjoy my stay!

Sir Valiant~

Welcome to the Pirates Forum Sir Valiant!  I'm glad you've finally decided to join and am excited to see your posts here as well.  I'm most certainly a fan of your build style and hope to see pirate era land MoCs eclipse over caste era now that your here.   Posted Image
